Maybe inspired by the team building realized in Portugal with Frezite Group Team, the truth is that António Félix da Costa becomes the only Portuguese driver that won a DTM Race – the most prestigious touring car championship based in Germany, where the driver acts as an FMT ambassador.
António Félix da Costa won the fourth Race of the DTM held at the Zandvoort Circuit, in Holland, in 11 and 12 July. The brand has come to be associated with the Portuguese driver in every step of DTM – Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters, a partnership that has already made headlines in the German press and continues to grow with great and fun moments. The brand and the driver are united by their passion for the automotive world, a competitive market where both want to continue to be a reference. We hope that this will be only the first of many other victories of this Portuguese driver.
The growth of Frezite in Czech Republic is a case study for its expressive performance on the metalworking industry. Also, and probably by that, is under the attention of the professional schools.
With a policy of open doors for the community, Frezite SRO received the visit of 29 students of engineering from a school in Jicín, where the company is located. This initiative joins closer the industry and the educational institutions. Annually the company receives three students in its facilities to do the practical learning where the trainees learn how to do it. At the same time the company also cooperates with the Czech Technical University in the area of cutting composite materials for the aeronautics industry.
With a continuous and sustained growth, Frezite SRO has been increasing its productive capacity. After the expansion of its facilities, the company invested in an Open Day for its customers.
The initiative took place on the 19th June and invited its customers to know the investments made by the company, particularly one hall with a new measuring department. Changes made to the continuous improvement of the service provided to FMT customers.
FMT is supporting the participation of its distributor for the Hungarian market at trade fair Mach-Tech taking place between 12 and 15 of May in Budapest.
Investing on a proximity service, the brand is supporting its local distributor, in an event that gathers its main clients in Hungary. It’s also in this event that the company will present its new communication supports, some of them specifically prepared for this exhibition.
The choice of the Portuguese driver came up the identification of the brand with the dynamism of the driver, which continues to succeed in motorsport throughout the world.
FMT will sponsor driver António Félix da Costa, who is in an upward phase of his career. This 23 year old is a BMW official driver in the DTM - Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters - the most cherished race touring car based in Germany. He still is a Formula 1 test driver, serving Infiniti Red Bull Racing and in 2015 is participating in Formula E races - the championship of electric FIA single seater that promises to revolutionize motorsport. The shared passion for the automotive world and a promising career, makes FMT brand that produces tooling systems for the automotive market to recognize that the driver meets the profile to be its ambassador in Germany.
This way, FMT brand seeks to strengthen its presence in North America, where it already has distribution channels in the United States.
The team is already working the Canadian market that proves to be attractive by the metal industry present in the country. A choice that results from the focus of the brand in a proximity service and simultaneously contributes to strengthening the global presence of the brand FMT - Tooling Systems.
